She's shorter than Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman but she's taller than Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz.

Has a long torso so 5ft 10 out of bed isn't entirely ruled out. Fair game her claim.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Mar/23
Worst case 5ft8¾ for Gwyneth. 5ft7 and 5ft10 are both ridiculous though. She's taller than Cameron Diaz but shorter than Charlize Theron based on photos I've seen...

lol at the older comments. what was this big obsession about her height anyways?

In the Ski Trial, Gwyneth was asked how tall she is. Her reply was that she’s just under 5’10”, and that she might be shrinking.
Editor Rob
That's an interesting height quote.

looks like she's just under 5' 10" or whatever that means. See Gwyneth ski trial.

There are about as many American women that are 5ft 9 compared to 5ft 1. This means that 5ft 9 is about equidistant from average height for a woman than 5ft 1.
ALEXIZ/180cm said on 23/Mar/21
173 cm max
Chaos Control 6'2.5 said on 21/Mar/21
I used to think she was 5’8 flat. I now believe 5’8.75 but I’m gonna vote higher to make the guess and listing match
Rapha said on 11/Feb/21
Hi Rob

Would you argue 178 cm morning height for her ?
Editor Rob
I'd expect that out of bed she'd measure close to 5ft 10

Pitt is kinda taller than her
Aj06 said on 14/Dec/20

To me she looks 5'8.75", average guess is high too.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/Jun/19
I found out this morning that Gwyneth is married to Brad Falchuk, of 'American Horror Story' fame.

Wouldn't it be great if she stars in one of the future productions?

I saw a picture of the two together, but I couldn't see if Gwynnie was wearing high heels. Even so, Brad is taller than her!

mohammad said on 16/Apr/19
5 foot 9 is the best prediction that could be possible ( for now )
TheBat said on 7/Mar/19

You know that RDJ wears lifts right? Paltrow is a solid 5'9" next to 5'8" RDJ in real life.
Tall Sam said on 7/Mar/19
@SEA7, bear in mind that RDJ has been wearing high end lifts as Tony Stark the entire time, hes never looked shorter than Paltrow in the films. Also in Infinity War he look close in height to Benedict Cumberbatch, a guy whose actually about 3-4 inches taller.
6footTom said on 7/Mar/19

Downey is also a notorious lift wearer though.
TheBat said on 6/Mar/19

You know RDJ wears lifts right? She's a true 5'9" unlike RDJ who's 5'8" at best.
SEA7 said on 6/Mar/19
She was shorter than RDJ at infinity war kiss scene

Because if she’s 5’8” then Brad is 5’9” max

She said on the view when promoting Sky Captain that she is 5’8” :)
Sandy Cowell said on 20/Aug/18
I think it was in the same magazine that I found Gwyneth was 5ft10 as the one which told me that Ms Diaz is 5ft9!

@ Nik - Isn't it charming? Rarely do you read that our celebs are smaller than they actually are, but it has happened.

Gwynnie can have 5ft9. Blimey, I wouldn't complain!
Harrey said on 6/Aug/18
No way she’s 5”9. More like 5”6. Robert Downey jr easily had 2+ inches on her in avengers infinity war. 5”7 at best given the benefit of a doubt but no way she’s 5”9.
Nik said on 3/May/18
@ Sandy Cowell - I know! That's why it's daft to lie about height, people can suss you out! Taller ain't necessarily better, don't believe it!
joe### said on 2/May/18
brad pitt never looks 5´11
Mimi said on 2/May/18
She's around 5ft9. Gwyneth has always looked around Taylor Swift's height and sometimes even taller
Sandy Cowell said on 2/May/18
@ Nik - Yes, Nik, I did believe ALL the heights I read because I didn't see why anyone would want to lie about that sort of thing! After all, can't anyone SEE how tall a person is, approximately anyway! I was always of the belief that taller isn't better necessarily, but now I'm not so sure!
Nik said on 1/May/18
@ Sandy Cowell

Well. With Rob listing Gwyneth at 5'9" and with 66 votes guessing just that we can be confident that she is somewhere around the 5'9" mark! However until you visit this website and the page of a particular celebrity you kinda believe what you read elsewhere! No wonder the rags want to know what Rob has to say about the heights of different celebrities!

Your interview with City chief Pep Guardiola is first thing in the morning, if successful Raheem Sterling will be one of your team mates!

There have been listings of 5'10", 5'9", and even 5'5" for Gwyneth, if she's 5'5" then I play up front for Anderlecht and I will eat my top 🎩!
Sandy Cowell said on 30/Apr/18
@ Nik - You might be interested to know that before I visited this website, I thought, having read it of course, that Gwyneth was 5ft TEN!

Well, when is my interview for Man City? 🏃⚽
Nik said on 29/Apr/18
@ Sandy Cowell & Birch girlie

Yes, for Man City!

Gwyneth can have 5'9" - on the nose! Failing that she's 5'8.75" for me!

5'9" ✔️ 5'8.75" ✔️ 5'5" ✖️

Birch_girlie said on 19/Apr/18 I can't believe there's actually people who think she's 5'5". She is most definitely above that. 5'5" is average and this woman is tall.

5'8.5 to 5'8.75 compared to 5'8 Corden.

Mary said on 17/Aug/17
Beautiful super-model beauty!! I have a huge girl crush on her. I've followed her since 1994 and she has been treated like cap from men. I hope she finds true love, she deserves it. Also the public hate on her for being "upper class" bit she can't help that she was born in a wealthy family. She's channeling her fame towards good causes, and she's an awesome actress. She never really did anything to anybody. I think she's a mini Oprah.
Slim 182 cm said on 13/Aug/17
Lmfao, if paltrow was actually 5'5 then rdj would be 5'3.5....

Rob, surely this troll is the same person on the Katie Holmes page? Ridiculous things people will do to downgrade pitt and cruise.
Editor Rob
sometimes Charlie is let loose to remind folk of the outrageous claims that exist.

Many reasoned people can see through them, but there are people like this who think guys like Tom Cruise are 5ft 4 and wear 4 inch lifts.
Charlie said on 10/Aug/17
I want to add a 5'9 woman will never wear high heels or a high heeled boot that would bring her from 6'0 to 6'1. Tall women will wear tae flattest footwear possible but every casual photo of her unrelated to movies just her being herself is always with heels on. As i said she is 5'5 without shoes and 5'8 with a heeled boot. This is where the 5'9 comes from. To add further there are multiple photos of her and Jude Law walking casually with running shoes. Her head comes to his eyes.Jude Law is 5'10 all though many argue that he is really 5'9. Now how can a 5'9 person look 5 inches shorter than a 5'10 male?Actors mostly males wear shoe lifts so you can't rightly compare male actors with other people not unless they are photographed on a beach with bare feet and still that can be inaccurate as well because the person can be standing on higher sand than the other person. 5'5 flat feet for Gwyneth Paltrow. With Boots 5'8.
Charlie said on 10/Aug/17
She was 2 inches shorter than 5'8 Michael Douglas when she did A perfect Murder. Michael Douglas is probably 5'6 now. Gwyneth had high heeled boots on when she did that movie and she was still shorter than Michael Douglas who was 5'8 perhaps 5'7 when he did that movie with her. There is no way Gwyneth is 5'9 flat feet no way. All said Gwyneth is more like 5'5 without shoes and with boots on she is just under 5'8.

She said in an interview years ago for Sky Captain that she is barely or a little bit over 5'8". It was on The View I think.

5 foot 9 legit
Nik said on 17/Jun/17
I would say that 5'9" seems right for her!
Pierre said on 14/Jun/17
Same height as James Corden
Hijopotamus said on 7/Jun/17
5'11" for Paltrow should be correct, according to this site as Brad is 5'11" and both same height barefoot.
Gwynbleidd said on 3/Apr/17
Quite a tall woman. Dead on 5' 9". I agree with Tc - she does have terrible posture, and therefore appears 5' 7" - a significant drop in height.
Tc said on 2/Apr/17
I'd buy 5ft 9. Has poor posture sometimes so can appear shorter.
Shredder said on 26/Feb/17
James looks no less than 5'8 in that pic.
AJ said on 19/Feb/17
How likely is a weak 5'9"
Editor Rob
AJ, I feel you can make a case for 5ft 8.5-9 zone at times.
Hijopotamus said on 6/Feb/17
Hey guys, you all mean Corden 5'9"?
Wow...makes sense... and Brad too!
Strong 5ft9 said on 5/Feb/17
So Rob, what do you think. Do you think James Corden is getting underestimated a little or do you think Gwyneth is getting overestimated a little. Who's getting the 5'8.5" mark?
Editor Rob
I think a solid 5ft 8 for Corden is ok, I was looking at him in an old episode of Dr Who with Matt smith and thought that was believable, a fraction over 5ft 8.
Strong 5ft9 said on 5/Feb/17
Hey Rob, could you explain this? She's about the same height as James Corden? But maybe slightly taller than him. 5'9" seems more harder to believe. Click Here
Editor Rob
she might be a little taller, but yeah maybe not that much.
6'7'' said on 27/Jan/17
She is 5'9'' spot on
Height Enthusiast said on 23/Jan/17
Gwyneth is tall, between 5'9-5'10 and is naturally pretty. If only she stopped groveling for Jigga and Yonce's friendship as she comes off doing publicly. Makes her look desperate and low class. I'm sure Jay Z and Beyonce laugh at her in private.
S.J.H said on 20/Jan/17
Gwyneth Paltrow can be solid 5'9 near 176cm
Hijopotamus said on 17/Jan/17
Why in the world Brad Pitt is rated as 180 and Gwyneth 175??? We all have seen their pic together both barefoot and she was a few mm taller!
Dont tell me Brad is taller because thats nonsense.
Just watch the pic and stop wasting time comparing people when theyr wearing shoes and who lbows what inside those shoes. Keep it simple.
So what's Gwyneth heigh? I'd say have a cm taller than Brad, whatever Brad is.
Kurtz said on 9/Jan/17
she became even more beautiful with age
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Jan/17
I have only ever read that Gwyneth is 5ft10, but if anyone can get away with a teeny touch of fabrication, then she can! She works hard to keep herself lean and there are many benefits to that, including the look of being a bit taller!
I thoroughly enjoyed her part in 'Seven', (the laughter at the dinner table rather than her sticky end!)
She was also in a great little thriller with Michael Douglas and Viggo Mortensen, but I cannot think of its name right now, so sorry about that!
I will go for a compromise for Gwyneth - 5ft9.5!
One last thing: why do so many people criticize her website? If they don't like it, they can always find others, though some people seem to have a predisposition for moaning about anything!
They should create their own sites and see how they like nasty criticism!!!
Johnson said on 26/Nov/16
James Corden is 175 cm guys, Paltrow too.

@Allen I think you're the one who's s****d because Gwyneth never looked below 5'8. She could be a weak 5ft9 but lower than that is 101% foolishness.

Seems to be 5'8"
Johno said on 1/Jun/16
175cm, take screenshots of various instances of the video and they are pretty much the same height and my money might be on James having the edge. Judy line the top of your mobile screen on Jame's head and you see him Skim it but eitherway, 1-inch is far to great. At times James does look above his listing though.
Johno said on 26/May/16
I always had her around 5'8 but admit that with James she looks around 5'7.5.

I am not one of those individuals that believes Paltrow is taller than Pitt; i believe is upto an inch taller however, judging by how short she looks here; it does not look good for Pitt's height.
Johno said on 24/May/16
On second look, James and Paltrow look very much the same height.
Johno said on 22/May/16
Just eded james in that video, i would say she averages ~ 5'8, i believe Rob would be a bit taller.
jack said on 21/Apr/16
If james is 5 8 then surely Gwyneth is not 5'9. From this video she looks around 5'7. Click Here

Az said on 8/Dec/15
Lots of new pics with her and rob Lowe getting a star on walk of fame. He's 5'10" and she's about 5'11" in heels. 5'8" is a good listing for her. I've seen her a lot and think 5'7.5"....not at all a really true 5'9". She's just so beautiful I think and I met rob Lowe too! He's totally 5'10". Wasn't as tall as my bro who is 5'11 but was taller than me in ballet flats and I'm 5'7.5". He's AMAZING and VERY KIND. ox

How could cameron diaz be 5'8 if paltrow stay 5'9? Everyone know there is at least 1.5inch difference
Allie said on 11/Oct/15
What 5'7? Are you people crazy? Did you not see the pic on RDJ's page? Her heels don't look gigantic and he's wearing his big shoes and yet she's still taller. She's also taller than Cameron. I'd say she's 5'8-5'9 in order to achieve that.
Allen said on 3/Sep/15
You haven't seen her barefeet in person so you can't be certain. Some have seen her and they say she's around 5'7.
hijopotamus said on 2/Sep/15
Nearly 5 10, have you stood beside her or beside Brad when they are not wearing heels or tricky shoes with lifys?
Nearly 5 10 said on 25/Aug/15
And no. Her and Brad Pitt are NOT the same height...
Nearly 5 10 said on 25/Aug/15
I have just verified that Michael Stipe is actually 5' 9" - which Rob has him listed at. Stipe and Paltrow are the same height - when she's not in her high heels or wedges. Gwyneth Paltrow IS 5' 9", guys!
Allen said on 22/Jul/15
Paltrow is nothing more than 5'7-5'8 and Pitt doesn't look any taller than her in that picture! makes me laugh some say he is an inch and a half taller! He only has a masculine body which makes him look taller! They are both nothing more than 5'8!
Dingus said on 9/May/15
5'08.75" I think
Cristina said on 1/Feb/15
Completely agree she is 175cm, she is tall and looks like a model. Definitely taller then Robert Downey jr. Maybe in the movies he may seem taller than her, but we all know they have tricks (apple boxes, steps and stuff) to make a man (and a small woman) look taller on screen...
Logan Hedlund said on 22/Jan/15
I'd say miss Paltrow is solid 5ft 8.5in ~174cm. Long leg bones. I would agree with mr. Rob, but I'm still unsure.

60kg I see mentioned for Paltrow (132 pounds) looks about right. Didn't Rob ever have her on the weight site?
Arch Stanton said on 4/Oct/14
150 pounds?? She's really skinny. Doubt it. Lindsey Vonn would be a good 40 pounds heavier I reckon. Somewhere between 130 and 140 I'd guess more likely.

Nope. I'm 5'9" and 160 lbs, and Ms. Paltrow is WAY more than 10 lbs lighter than me. I last had a figure like hers when I was about 17 and an inch shorter, and I weighed about 125 lbs.

Tape Measure said on 3/Apr/14
She's been seen with Stipe on numerous occasions, sometimes with heels. But when she looked the same height as Stipe, she was in sneakers.

Yes, in the famous 'Pitt and Paltrow barefoot picture' he looks 1 inch taller absolute MAX. But it isn't a great photo to compare height because the camera angle's not ideal.

Could this put Chris Martin at a weak 6'0 maybe even 5'11.75 ?

LOL you're really bad at judging height. For a start the height difference is not under 4 inches, and Gwyneth is on higher ground and its the edge of a road. Reality is that Chris is a strong 6'1.

174 cm is the lowest I'd estimate for her. I think a weak 5' 9" is more accurate.

About 5ft9 is fair. She keeps getting better with age.

i have stood next to her more than once in nyc and in austin texas at a coldplay show. she is around 5'7 but not quite 5'8. i am about 57.5 sometimes measured as 5'7.75". she's really really pretty and skinny.

Chris, you're mis-reading the stats! the "175" is centimeters............she's 5'9" and nothing mentioned about weight. She's not wearing "platforms", either......she's wearing high heels, which many fashionable women wear.
Chris said on 22/May/13
I don´t think she´s 175, Robert Downey is almost taller than her in heels and he is 173 . Guy Pearce is taller than her in heels hand he is 178. Robert is wearing lifts, but still. I would say that Gwyneth is 171-173.
J.Lee said on 20/Apr/13
Rob, these platforms are monsters. Click Here Would you estimate 6 foot 2 in those monsters?
Editor Rob
yeah they are beasts
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 28/Mar/13
Rob, do you agree with little sue's estimate of 3.5 inches of extra height for those heels?
Editor Rob
I'd have guessed if I seen them in person around 3.5-3.75 range, they'd probably be called a 4.5-5inch style in the shop.
little sue said on 27/Mar/13
I would say the heels being about 5 inches and the platform an inch they probably give about 3.5 inches of actual height

Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 21/Jan/13
Pitt is an inch or so taller.
The only way hes 180cm is if Paltrow is 177cm+ barefoot. The max paltrow can be is 176cm which means brad is max 179cm range.
I actually think 178-178.5cm at night is where Pitt would fall if measured. I wouldnt be suprised between 177.5-179cm but cant really see him higher than a strong 179cm.
Trey said on 26/Dec/12
In The Avengers, 172/173 cm Downey Jr was a good 4-5 cm taller than her, in huge track shoes, probably adding 5-6 cm. 173-174 cm seems right for Paltrow, not quite 5'9.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Dec/12
Hope she continues to look more and more like her mother, Blythe Danner is a good looking woman.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Dec/12
She's one of the best examples of a legit 5'9" woman in my opinion. But she actually proportionally looks the exact same height as Abbey Crouch in this pic who I believe is nearer 5'8".
refresh said on 24/Oct/12
did you look at the pic with brad pitt,they naked and barefoot??? brad is NOT taller not even for 1 cm!what is wrong with you? she IS 175 cm,long legs,long neck and brad IS ALSO 175 range barefoot,am i only one who see that?
sara said on 22/Oct/12
She looks so much like her mother (Blythe Danner) in this pic. Probably 5'8" max.
James Livingstone said on 2/Sep/12
Rich Hall is right. She's max 2 inches taller than 5'5" Beyonce
that stops her at 5'7" grand max and put Brad Pitt at 5'8"

anything is science fiction
178 said on 15/Jan/12
A fraction below 5' 9". Paltrow is 5' 8.75" - still 175 cm though. A classic "weak 5' 9".
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 8/Jan/12
Johno is correct again. 5'8" (172-173cm) MAX for Paltrow. Very attractive woman.

This proves that Pitt is 175-176cm MAX as Pitt has an inch MAX on Paltrow in the barefoot pictures. In fact I wouldn't rule out 173-174cm for Pitt.
josef said on 16/Dec/11
she's 5'7 barefoot wearing heels 5'9
truth said on 8/Dec/11
realistically she cant be passed
you see calling her a flat 175 cm
is cool if your are ROUNDING
she is tall but not that tall

supper supper supper dopper skinny

that is why it is hard to tell

some pictures she seems
5 foot 7 and other picture she
seems like a genuine 5 foot 9

so my guess 172 and brad has
2.5 cm on her so my best guess for him
now is 175 flat

its interesting actually
we no brad is more than 3 cm taller than her

but what if gwen was only 165 cm then brad would
be 168

or if gwen was 170 cm then brad would be

everyone just try to find her out height out
she is not impossible like MR. FULL PROOF PITT

its interesting ive seen her look
5 foot 7 5 foot8 5 foot 9 never 5 foot 10

same for pitt
we have all seen pitt seem
5 foot 7 5 foot 8 5 foot 9
but no 5 foot 10

if you find gwens mesurements on luck
just add 3 cm and thats brad pitts height

his shoulders are the same with her
its just he has a longer neck
and a little bit of a bigger head

Paltrow isnt more than 5'9 just look at her with Chris Martin, didnt look it with Beyonce either. So 5'9 max.

Funny isn't it Rob how Johno turns around the pictures to explain it the other way round!!! What makes me laugh is how these people ignore 99% of the picture comparisons of them looking the heights listed on here and they use the 1% to claim they are that short.


Where have these ''99%'' and ''1%'' figures come from? You picked a celebrity to contrast, stating difference would be lucky to be 1 inch and then i show a link, with your celebrity that shows the difference would be a minimum of 1.5 inches and more towards 2 inches. It is very hard to turn around anything. But yeh, where those 99% of pictures show vin diesel about 1 inch shorter then the 6'2 rock, yeh i guess i can be seen as twisting them to show he isn't, not to mention a whole host of other celebrities....

@shaun, i'm pretty sure you seen these pictures before. Kelly is over 1.5 inches taller then diaz there, infact looks closer to 2 inches taller. He is wearing his cap flat and his eyeline is 2 inches higher then hers.

Even in your own example, diaz looks 5'7 the most with 5'8.5 slater. Looks very much a weak 5'7 and it can even be argued that she looks 5'6.5 there.

With your paltrow being 1 inch taller then diaz, the 5'9 listing doesn't look good. Paltrow would be 5'8 max and can also be a weak 5'8 with diaz.

Pitt, is more then 0.5 inches taller then paltrow. Nothing less then 1 inch between them and could be slightly more.

Slater 5'8.5
Diaz weak 5'7 ( looks suspeciously 5'6.5 )
Paltrow weak 5.8 ( 5'8.5 a possibility but with diaz, no )
Pitt 5'9 - 5'9.5
Shaun said on 3/Nov/11
@Johno. Cameron Diaz is not even an inch shorter than 5'8.5" Kelly Slater. and around 172cm range I think. Diaz is easily an inch shorter than Paltrow. She always looks a solid 5'9".
Shaun said on 3/Nov/11

Heres Paltrow with matt damon. As you can see, paltrow has 2 inch platforms on and matt doesn't even have 1 inchers on. Footwear advantage around 1.2 inches. Paltrow posture isn't exactly straight but anyone with even a little sense can tell that without her footwear advantage would not be taller then Matt damon and if anything a tad shorter.

The funny is, damon is listed at 5'10, some people argue 5'9, alot argue 5'8.5 and some like me, believe he's closer to 5'8. So tell me, how can paltrow be 5'9 next to damon seriously? 5'8.5 possibly but i generally believe shes more 5'8 with damon and could be a weak 5'8 to.

Damon 5'8 - 5'8.5
Paltrow weak 5'8 (Although could be near 5'8.5 to but i doubt it, definently not 5'9 or above)

Heres paltrow with robert downey jnr. No one cuts downey any slack. He isn't that short. I believe he is around 5'7.5 - 5'8. Now in the above pictures, he has 1 inch sneakers on, whereas paltrow has clear 4 inch heels on and even then shes about 2 inches above RDJ. Like for like, she would have no height on him. Thus she is also around 5'7.5 - 5'8, not 5'9 i believe. Both of them weak 5'8s, as her original listings states used to state.

robert downey jnr 5'7.5 - 5'8
Gwyneth Paltrow 5'7.5 - 5'8

@ Delta / thanks dude I'd like to thank the fellow nominees... lol
but seriously taking a closer look at the pic, you can clearly see that Beyonce's forehead is above Gwyneth's eyebrow line so the max difference between them is 2 inches // 5'5" + 2" = 5'7" on ze dotzzzz Volga out :-)
Delta said on 12/Jul/11
Congratulations Rich Hall, you have just won the, "I can't tell heights worth sh*t award." Let's bring reality to this situation. According to what you say, Beyonce Knowles is 5'5" which could be an incorrect measure by you. In fact it is as Rob has her listed at at 5'6" however with that aside Paltrow is NOTICEABLY taller than Knowles. She has AT LEAST 3 inches on her if not MORE in those photos. Even with your theory that Beyonce is "5'5" Paltrow may still hit 5'9 or 5'8.5 at the very least. She cannot be 5'7 which would not make Pitt 5'8, so your trolling days are over. Case Closed, Paltrow is 5'9" and downgrading like Gatorade won't make her shorter. (Wink wink)

She's almost the same height as Nicole Kidman when both are in heels. There are photos of them from the 2011 Oscars standing side by side, and when Paltrow stands up straight (she has bad posture & Kidman has very good posture), they are nearly the same height. She can't be less than 5'9....girl towers over every other actress also (except the truly tall, like Kidman), and they're all wearing massive heels.
Shaun said on 29/Apr/11
She towers a 5 ft 7 woman when she is wearing heels. What does that tell you?

Stipe looks 5'9". She looks 6'1" in her best heels. She towered Chelsea Handler recently who is 5'6" and has also towered 5'7" Ellen in heels. She's a legit 5'9", at worst 174cm.

ok, maybe she's 5'8.5 I don't think she looks taller than Cameron Diaz. So...
hey i know that guy said on 4/Feb/11
definitely 5-9.

she is flat footed though which makes her seem a bit shorter when she is barefoot or wearing flip flops, because of the abnormal posterior compression that all flat footers suffer without arched or angled shoes.

but in heels she is always over 6 feet.

Hi Everyone! I worked for 2 mounths at the movie The Talented Mr. Riplay into 1999 and I saw Gwyneth Paltrow live. I'm a solid 5,11 and must say that she looks exactly 5,9, she looks taller cause she's really slim! Matt Damon was about 5,10, 5,11 and Jude Law is a little bit shorter than him, about 5,10...That's what i can remember!

I've ALWAYS thought Paltrow was a legit 5'9" she really does look too tall to be any shorter. Maybe 5'8,5" at lowest but she always looks very tall and willowy. IN heels she made Pitt look short. If she can reach 6'1" in heels like she did with Pitt then she has to be a legit 5'9" er.

In an interview on the late night show, Robert Downey Jr who on this site is 5'8 said that Gwyneth was much taller than him. Much means more than 1 inch so I'm surprised that she is only 5'9 on this site. I am guessing at least 5'9.5 or even 5'10. She is a tall lady, no doubt about that.

Janisbeth, highschool is brutal with the guys in your grade not maturing fast enough. If your parents trust you see if you can go on dates with a guy a year or so older who will treat you (hopefully) more recpectfully and be greatful that your confidendt in your height and your over all package is something he is going to wait long and hard for which will prove what kind of person he is, and girl thats what you want. Its the idiots that wait until your 19 and 5'9 or 5'10 to say something positive. "thanks alot guys, could have used that in middle school". Good luck and don't you ever be embarrassed by your heighth, I made that mistake and I hope I can tell girls not to do the same. Be confident!

Brapp said on 12/Sep/08
Lemon, yeah that one. I don't know if the model's really 5'11". She's definately *at least* 5'10 though.

Based on that I would guess Gywneth is about 5'8.5"

taken with allegedly 188cm Daniel Henney, with model's you usually have to subtract an inch or so, so he could be more around 185. Even so, Paltrow looks at least 175cm with her sandals on.

What's with all the 5'7" claims? If Paltrow is 5'7" then I must be 5'3". Weird though. I always thought she was around my height (5'11.5). She's a very tall woman nonetheless. Downey was probably sporting lifts (or stilts. lol) in Iron Man to appear taller than her.

Jay said on 25/May/08
She's definitely atleast 5'9". In her recent movie Ironman, she wears heels most of the time but her scenes with Robert Downey are all close-ups. In the last scene of the movie, 5'8" Downey even looks 3 inches taller than Paltrow. He must have stood on a stool then.
In her pics with Pitt, she always appears 2.5-2 inches shorter than Pitt when she's in flats(or normal 0.75-1 inch shoes).
Seeing her and Mischa Barton makes me feel short and small. I'm a guy and only 5'4". They should be proud of their height instead of downgrading it. If only I was atleast 5'7".
And I agree with the post below me when he/she says that Paltrow's daughter will be huge. Good for her.

I have read just about all the comments. Alot of debate about her height. But, it seems to me that sometimes things look exactly like what they are. In laymens terms; the woman looks VERY tall, she says she is 5"9 I am sure she is. Have you seen her leggs-there endless. I have also seen pic's of her standing next to people- she is always taller than everyone. Her mother is 5"7, she is 5"9. I would honestly think it was odd if I had found out she was any shorter. Like I said, it is what it is. She looks tall, and no surprize she is tall :)
